Jeff Lima will miss Wigan's Engage Super League game against Catalan Dragons on Friday after being handed a one-match ban.

Lima appeared before the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee on Tuesday after he was charged with dangerous play during the 22-22 draw with Leeds.

The former New Zealand international was sin-binned at the time for the challenge on Leeds second-rower Chris Clarkson and has been found guilty of the grade B offence.

Lima, who is in his first season in Super League, missed the Warriors' World Club Challenge clash with St George Illawarra in February because of a two-match suspension imposed for a "chicken-wing" tackle.

He was also handed a £300 fine.

Castleford centre Willie Isa was also given a one-match ban and a £300 fine after being found guilty of a dangerous tackle on Epalahame Lauaki in the 20-18 win over Hull.

The former Melbourne Storm player will miss his side's home game against Salford on Sunday.
